SJ - September 7, 2020

Umpire Joe West delayed the 7th inning of a 7-1 game to call security on Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo for not wearing a mask.  This despite the fact that Rizzo was standing by himself in an empty stadium.

I wish I was kidding.  Unfortunately I'm not.  It's just the latest example of Joe West's complete incompetence.  The man is a power hungry idiot.

This sums up 2020 perfectly.  A complete loss of common sense.  That seems to be much more widespread than the coronavirus.

In what reality is a mask required for a guy standing alone with the closest people hundreds of feet away?
